We are building a 14x32 rectangular inground pool and need to decide the depth ASAP. We are doing full length steps with the second step extended 4' for a sun ledge/kids play area. Currently we are thinking of going 2' off the bottom step and then starting a decline to the deep end of 7'. What do you guys think of that kind of slope? Will it be usable? Like will I just be able to stand on it and not slide down.
We're just trying to make the most of our limited space. We have 2 young kids (3 years and 10 months), but want them to be able use the pool when they are older. When older, we want them to be able to jump in, dive for things on the bottom (but not dive in), and just play around. We mainly just want to be able to float on noodles and rafts, and swim around. I like to tread water which is why I wanted some depth. But we are also hoping with the gradual incline that we can stand for a good amount of the pool. Is that a gradual incline, or is it too steep?
I've included a side profile that I did. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
